TOMORROW is Wear Red Day. Students are all invited to wear red clothes to make a statement that P.E.T.N.S does not tolerate racism.
Here's a video made by our Student Council (including Milena, Seema, Candy and Kay):
Today we spent the day at the eHealth Exhibition at the Science Gallery in Trinity. We were able to interact with new technologies, build using Minecraft, and get ideas for our Primary Science project in January.
Some people even got to try simulated surgery using VR technology, play an ipad game powered by brainwaves and we even got interviewed by Newstalk FM. Thanks to Eva and Anita for helping out with the trip
Every year November is RSE month in Powerstown Educate Together. RSE stands for Relationships and Sexuality Education. I will be posting details of each lesson before it is covered in class. This means that should you have any questions about the content, you can contact me before it is covered in class. I'm posting details for this week's lessons below. This can also show you how to discuss these topics with your child at home. Any questions please email me or contact me on Class Dojo.

Next Tuesday we will be going on a trip to The Science Gallery in Trinity College Dublin. On this trip we will be able to view and interact with new inventions, gadgets and a Minecraft interactive exhibit.
This trip will enable the students to get ideas for their own exhibition at the Primary Science Fair at the RDS in January. More on this later!
I have sent home a letter for you to sign giving permission for your child to go on the trip. Please send this back to me by the end of this week. If you have an questions email me or send me a message on Class Dojo.
